The Highs and Lows of Sailing and Boat Ownership

[S03E19] “The happiness and highs of boat ownership and cruising do outweigh the unpleasant lows.

Can you guess what was almost everyone’s low?

“The sea calls to you or it doesn’t. Sailing beckons you. If you don’t love it, you’ll be miserable. If you do, you won’t trade it for anything.” Steve Tyner, followtheboat viewer
